► Give Form W-4 to your employer.
► Your withholding is subject to review by the IRS.

(C)
☐ Single or Married filing separately
☐ Married filing jointly(or Qualifying widow(er))
☑ Head of household (Check only if you're unmarried and pay more than half the costs of keeping up a home for yourself and a qualifying individual.)
(b) Social security number

► Complete Form W-4 so that your employer can withhold the correct federal income tax from your pay.

Complete Steps 2-4 ONLY If they apply to you; otherwise, skip to Step 5. See page 2 for more information on each step, who can claim exemption from withholding, when to use the online estimator, and privacy.

Step 2:
Multiple Jobs or Spouse Works

Complete this step if you (1) hold more than one job at a time, or (2) are married filing jointly and your spouse also works. The correct amount of withholding depends on income earned from all of these jobs.

Do only one of the following.

  • Use the estimator at www.irs.gov/W4App for most accurate withholding for this step (and Steps 3-4); or
  • Use the Multiple Jobs Worksheet on page 3 and enter the result in Step 4(c) below for roughly accurate withholding; or
  • If there are only two jobs total, you may check this box. Do the same on Form W-4 for the other job. This option is accurate for jobs with similar pay; otherwise, more tax than necessary may be withheld ► ☑
  • TIP: To be accurate, submit a 2020 Form W-4 for all other jobs. If you (or your spouse) have self-employment income, including as an independent contractor, use the estimator.

Complete Steps S-4(b) on Form W-4 for only ONE of these jobs. Leave those steps blank for the other jobs. (Your withholding will be most accurate if you complete Steps 3-4(b) on the Form W-4 for the highest paying job.)

Step 3:
Claim Dependents

If your income will be $200,000 or less ($400,000 or less if married filing jointly):

Multiply the number of qualifying children under age 17 by $2,000 ►
2

Multiply the number of other dependents by $500 ►

Instructions

Changes effective for 2020
Form IT-2104 has been revised for tax year 2020. The worksheet onpage 4 and the charts beginning on page 5, used to compute withholding allowances or to enter an additional dollar amount on line(s) 3,4, or 5, have been revised. If you previously filed a Form IT-2104 and used the worksheet or charts, you should complete a new 2020 Form IT-2104 and give it to your employer.

Who should file this form
This certificate. Form IT-2104, is completed by an employee and given to the employer to instruct the employer how much New York State (and New York City and Yonkers) tax to withhold from the employee's pay. The more allowances claimed, the lower the amount of tax withheld.

If the federal Form W-4 you most recently submitted to your employer was for tax year 2019 or earlier, and you do not file Form IT-2104, your employer may use the same number of allowances you claimed on your federal Form W-4. Due to differences in tax law, this may result in the wrong amount of tax withheld for New York State, New York City, and Yonkers.

For tax years 2020 or later, withholding allowances are no longer reported on federal Form W-4. Therefore, if you submit a federal Form W-4 to your

employer for tax year 2020 or later, and you do not file Form IT-2104, your employer may use zero as your number of allowances. This may result in the wrong amount of tax withheld for New York State, New York City, and Yonkers.

Complete Form IT-2104 each year and file it with your employer if the number of allowances you may claim is different from federal Fomn W-4 or has changed. Common reasons for completing a new Form IT-2104 each year include the following:

You started a new job.
You are no longer a dependent.
Your individual circumstances may have changed (for example, you were married or have an additional child).
You moved into or out of NYC or Yonkers.
You itemize your deductions on your personal income tax return.
You claim allowances for New York State credits.
You owed tax or received a large refund when you filed your personal income tax return for the past year.
Your wages have increased and you expect to earn $107,650 or more during the tax year.

Declination of Influenza Vaccination


My employer, 24/7 HomeCare Agency of NY, Inc, has recommended that I receive the influenza vaccination to protect the patients I serve.

I acknowledge that I am aware of the following facts:

  • Influenza is a serious respiratory disease that kills thousands of people in the United States each year.
  • Influenza vaccination is recommended for me and all other healthcare workers to protect this facility’s patients from influenza, its complications, and death.
  • If I contract influenza, I can shed the virus for 24 hours before influenza symptoms appear. My shedding the virus can spread influenza to patients in this facility.
  • If I become infected with influenza, even if my symptoms are mild or non-existent, I can spread it to others and they can become seriously ill.
  • I understand that the strains of virus that cause influenza infection change almost every year and, even if they don’t change, my immunity declines over time. This is why vaccination against influenza is recommended each year.
  • I understand that I cannot get influenza from the influenza vaccine.
  • The consequences of my refusing to be vaccinated could have life-threatening consequences to my health and the health of those with whom I have contact, including:
    • All patients in this healthcare facility
    • My Coworkers
    • My Family
    • My Community

Despite these facts, I am choosing to decline influenza vaccination right now for the following reasons:

I understand that I can change my mind at any time and accept influenza vaccination, if vaccine is still available.

I also understand that I will need to wear a face mask during flu season while I am on a case with a patient.

I have read and fully understand the information on this declination form. I have also received a flu mask for this flu season.
